Instead of them, the people’s deputy considers, it is necessary to create one state platform, which will provide services to citizens and enterprises for only 51 UAH. The scan copy of the working document shows that today private electronic platforms work in Prozorro systems. Prozorro.Sale (sale of assets of financial institutions and state property).
